Ellis County sheriff cracking down on mudding


WFAA.com: WAXAHACHIE — Ellis County Sheriff Johnny Brown is cracking down on mudding, a form of reckless driving he says is hurting local farmers and ranchers. “It’s nice and muddy out there, and the kids want to go out there and play,” Brown said. Mudding is when a driver — usually a teen, in Brown’s experience — purposefully spins out a vehicle’s tires in an empty field. The problem is when that driver tears up private property. Driving through farm land can lead to felony charges, Sheriff Brown said. “They’re done if we catch them on camera,” Brown said. “They’re going to have to explain it. My goal is not to hurt these kids, my goal is to educate them.” He’s cracking down on mudding by teaming up with farmers, getting parents on board, and even installing hidden cameras.
